UPDATE! The pandemic brought many new challenges for the hearing impaired: communicating at a safe
It's important now, more than ever, to understand hearing loss, the impact of masks and social distancing, how to advocate for oneself, and use compensatory and repair strategies to help make communication successful.
The programs focus on teaching patients how to improve vocal volume, speech clarity, swallowing skills, and cognitive abilities.

To help “keep up” during noisy situations, conversations, and while watching TV, our patients have found that short-term auditory training has added to the benefits of the hearing aids and has significantly improved overall communication. We will set goals and teach compensatory strategies to:
- Understand and manage your hearing loss.
- Increase the ability to process, understand, and recall rapid speech.
- Learn or improve lip reading skills.
- Develop strategies with family members to make communication easier.
The benefits of developing social skills in everyday activities are imperative to a person’s ability to communicate appropriately in social settings. Our practice offers social communication group programs that specifically focuses on:
- Social Thinking
- Conversational Skills
- Social Interactions
Stuttering is a communication disorder involving disruptions or disfluencies in a person’s speech. Our stuttering group programs specifically focuses on:
- Reducing the frequency of stuttering
- Decreasing tension during moments of stuttering
- Reducing avoidance of words or social situations
- Educating the participants so they understand the mechanics that underlie stuttering

What people say about us?
Superb experience as always. The staff at Speech and Hearing Associates is always professional, courteous and friendly. I would never go anywhere else! Domenico P.
My experience with SHA is always wonderful. Dr. Egan is considerate, professional, kind, caring, and proficient. We think she’s the BEST! Margaret L.
I was very pleased with Jackie at the desk upon entering the office and also with Dr. Egan who did the testing. I never felt rushed and knew I had her undivided attention throughout the entire time I was with her. I am hopeful that I will have a good experience adjusting to the hearing aids and also believe I will have help from SHA making that adjustment. Marie C.
My experience with SHA has been great! Staff from receptionist to specialist had been nothing but pleasant and helpful. Zachary M.
Michele McGlynn has been my audiologist since 2010 or 2011 — before the Denville Office even existed. She is fully professional, very friendly, knows how to listen to my concerns and questions, provides information and suggestions. She does not “speak down” at all — my own understanding of my hearing status and how to best work with it has improved so much over the years because of Michelle’s competence. Thank you, Michele. Betty M.
We love Ms. Tara Bradshaw. She’s fabulous with my son and I can see him making some real progress. She also gives very good tips on how to work with him at home, all of which not only help my son, but me as well in dealing with the needs of my child. Aditya M.
